BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Nearly $100,000 worth of meth was discovered during a traffic stop in Berkeley County.
It happened Tuesday night when a Berkeley County K-9 deputy stopped a vehicle on I-26 for a traffic violation.
The deputy reported that as he was speaking with the driver he saw an open alcoholic beverage in the center console.
"Upon having the driver and passenger exit the vehicle, additional contraband was in plain view," BCSO officials said.
Authorities say they searched the vehicle and found a glass pipe commonly used to smoke methamphetamine in the front, passenger floor area.
"After locating the pipe, a make-up bag that contained three, large bundled packages that contained a clear, crystal-like substance was located," BCSO officials said."All three bundles were packaged in freezer bags and wrapped in plastic wrap."
A report states the substance in the bags field-tested presumptive for methamphetamine.
BCSO officials say the total weight of methamphetamine seized was 953 grams with a street value of $95,300.
Deputies arrested 60-year-old Dwayne Breeden Morrison of Dunwoody, Georgia and 34-year-old Sean Albert Taylor who authorities said is listed as homeless.
Both were charged with trafficking meth.
They were locked up at the Hill Finklea Detention Center.
